"The Change" is the sixth album by Swedish pop singer and songwriter Marie Fredriksson, and her solo debut in English. Written and recorded during two years of medication and darkness after the removal of a brain tumour in September 2002. Features the singles "2nd Chance", "All About You" and "A Table In The Sun", as well as other songs full of vital power and confidence that came to life after Marie transformed sorrow and pain into lyrics and music together with her husband Mikael Bolyos.

Marie's comments on the album

"Making "The Change" feels like a victory to me. An incredible cool and fantastic feeling that's hard to describe in words. I had thoughts and plans of a solo album in English for a long while. Suddenly it felt necessary to do this. I wanted to share emotions and experiences from our worst time. There were moments where I thought I didn't have the strength to finish the work, but I got it, little by little."
